7:01 am
morning, september 13, 2010. this is the real monday in september when really this is it. back the school, it's really all over. >> summer is over. >> good morning. i'm harry smith. >> on that uplifting note. i'm erica hill. all eyes this morning, not just on the reality that is back to school and we're back to september but on hurricane igor which is in the atlantic. could be the first category five storm we've seen in years. dave price is back this morning with the latest. >> good morning to you folks. let's get to the business. could be the first category five in the atlantic base innen three years. there is igor, there is julia. right now the storm 940 miles east of the leeward islands, british virgin islands, u.s.
7:02 am
vrnlgen islands. wind speeds 150 miles per hour. it's going to get up to 155, that's category five. still west at 13, still plenty of warm water and not a lot of wind sheer. then let's watch it progress. it will run into shear, some cooler water. bermuda is a question as we head into the weekend. what could it do and when will it make the turn to the north and to the east? that's what we wait for. wonder and watch. we'll have more in a little while. but a big storm brewing in the atlantic. folks, back to you. >> thanks very much, dave. to the latest on the battle over the bush era tax cuts. should they be extended and who should get them? a top republican in congress seems to be willing to make a deal with president obama who wants to limit the tax breaks, but is the gop really ready to make such a deal? and if so, what will it mean for your wallet? cbs news chief white house correspondent chip reid has the
7:03 am
latest. >> reporter: good morning. congress is back from recess at long last. and they are expected to begin debate soon. republicans had been insisting that they be extended for everybody including the wealthy but now the door has been cracked open to compromise. >> i want to do something for all americans who pay taxes. >> reporter: house minority leader boehner said he would support extending tax cuts for the middle class even if those for the wealthy were allowed to expire. >> the only option i have is to vote for some of the tax reductions, i'll vote for them. >> reporter: he wants all the cuts extended but if forced to compromise that would abvictory for president obama who says they should be extended for couples earning less than $250,000 a year. and anyone making more would see taxes rise. also weighing in, the tea party,
7:04 am
thousands marched on the capital sunday ahead of midterm elections, similar rallies in sacramento and st. louis. >> really wanting to get government out of our lives and to pay our bills and to have fiscal responsibility. in our nation. >> reporter: if the white house thinks it can blame republicans for the bad economy, that may not work. >> this is a midterm election. it's all about turnout because only 40% of adults will turn out. i think democrats are having problems motivating their base because they see the administration as having overpromised and underdelivered. >> reporter: despite all of the talk of compromise the debate is expected to be so fierce any final deal might have to wait until after election day when congress returns to washington for a lame duck session. >> cbs's chip reid. s at the white house is president obama's press secretary, robert gibbs. mr. gibbs, good morning. >> good morning, harry. how are you? >> pretty good. so john boehner goes on face the
7:05 am
nation yesterday and he says, quote, if the only, if the only option i have is to vote for some of the tax reductions i'll vote for them. is that a window? >> well, look. last week harry, the president argued pretty vociferously that we ought to extend the tax cut this is affect the middle class in this economy right now. that's what the president believes. i hope that congressman boehner's comments suggest a willingness to agree to the president's position. we ought not use the middle class as a political football. we ought to extend the tax cuts for the middle class. we ought to do it fairly quickly, give them certainty and make sure they know that they are going to get help in tough economic times. >> you know there are plenty of people out there including peter or zach who halt recently your director of office of management and budget saying there should be tax increases for nobody. now is not the time to be increasing taxes. >> well, harry, understand what peter argues. peter argues that we should extend the middle class tax cuts
7:06 am
for two years and have them expire. he believe the price of doing that is having to extend the upper end tax cuts that's what we should do. that's not the president's position because let's be clear. the tax cuts for the upper end, the wealthy which mostly go to millionaires, that's a $700 billion proposition over the next ten years. the president does not believe that we should be borrowing $700 billion most likely from overseas to extend tax cuts for folks, frankly, that weren't asking for them and don't particularly need them. >> in terms of real life. mitch mcconnell says this has zero chance in the senate. from republicans standpoint. at the end of the day what americans are saying how does this create new jobs? >> how does what create new jobs? the tax cuts? >> any of this other stuff, i'm looking at 9.6, i need a gig. >> look. there's no question we've got to get our economy even more
7:07 am
strengthened than what we're seeing now. we've seen eight straight months of job creation. but look. for the middle class, this economic recession didn't start two years ago or 2 1/2 years ago. it's going on for ten years. they watched their wages decrease, wondered how to pay their bills an send kids to college. the president believes for the middle class it's not time to raise taxes. it's time to cut their taxes. >> boehner also said, basically, why not bring the budget back to about 2008 levels, then you wouldn't have to be having that conversation. any way possible to shrink the government down to 2008 size and move on from there? >> look. the president has proposed freezing non-security discretionary spending for three years. understand the argument that john boehner makes. he wants to cut spending in one breath and then without breathe he wants to borrow $700 billion paid for by the middle class to give tax breaks to millionaires. the average tax break is
7:08 am
$100,000. that's not what we should be doing. that doesn't make economic sense and it lacks common sense. >> for those of you on the sidelines, if you want to know how mr. gibbs and mr. boehner feel about each other, go on their twitter accounts. there you have it. mr. gibbs, thank you very much. appreciate it. >> harry, in iran three american hikers have been in jail for more than a year, one of them, sarah shourd, could be freed on bail as early as today. cbs correspondent elizabeth palmer is in london with the latest on this diplomatic back and forth. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, erica. yes. unfortunately it's still a waiting game. this is after a series of confused you might say chaotic announcements by the iranian government about sarah shourd. >> it's terrible to be away from our families this long. >> reporter: originally shourd seen last may during a visit by all three hikers' mothers, was
7:09 am
told she would be released on saturday. but it didn't happen. apparently due to infighting in the regime. on sunday authorities announced she would be freed after all. >> american citizen sarah shourd will be released on bail. >> reporter: the sum, half a million dollars which her lawyer is trying to arrange. i have spoken with sarah's family, and i urged them to provide the bail if they have access to. shourd's friends, shane bauer and josh fattal, are to stay in jail. all three say they were visiting a famous beauty spot on the border between iraq and iran two summers ago when they were arrested t. iranian prosecutors say they are now finalizing a spying case against the two men. but are offering sarah shourd her freedom on health grounds, her family says they are worried she may be developing cancer. >> she has a precancerous condition and i'm actually worried that this young woman is
7:10 am
going to get cancer for real. >> reporter: now, we were talking to the lawyer just a short time ago and he points throughout may be another technical glitch. at the moment under u.s. sanctions law it's illegal to transfer money into iran especially if it's going to the iranian government so there is going to have to be some technical work around for that. >> not there yet. elizabeth palmer in london, thanks. >> now to the latest on the california gas explosion. that killed at least four people. most residents of the neighborhood in san bruno near san francisco have finally been able to return four days after the blast. the rest could be let back in today. david clements is at the scene. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. crews are working around the clock to try to clear rubble so residents can get in and survey the damage to homes. now some of the homes here have been red tagged which means they are completely uninhabitable. the owners can't go inside. others have been leveled,
7:11 am
destroyed to the ground. a lucky few yesterday were told they could go home. >> we'll give you a packet what to do. >> reporter: at a makeshift command center sunday morning, residents of the leveled neighborhood waited to find out when they could go back home. >> i want to look at my house for five minutes. >> reporter: the explosion destroyed 40 and damaged hundreds. investigators continue to search for the cause. >> we don't know at this point whether there was a well failure, whether there was impact from previous construction. >> reporter: california regulators have ordered the utility company to survey all of its natural gas lines in the state, in hopes of warding off another disaster. according to pacific gas and electric documents the pipeline that exploded thursday was considered one of the highest risk sections by the company. by midday, the shaken community was filled with bittersweet
7:12 am
reunions. neighbors finding each other after days of worry. >> i definitely feel lucky. >> reporter: henry perez escaped his childhood home with his mother, brother and nephew. while their house was not damaged, signs of the destruction were just a few hundred feet away. >> used to be a park there where families take their kids. >> pretty much all is gone now. >> reporter: investigators continue to sift through the debris for remains. four people are confirmed dead. another four are missing. and 60 have been injured. pria david clemons. >> i want to get you a check of the rest of the news. jeff glor is at the news desk. >> good morning. good monday morning to you at home as well. this morning colorado firefighters face a second destructive wild fire. the latest blaze near loveland, 35 miles north of last week's fire in boulder. the loveland fire began
7:13 am
yesterday and quickly grew. at least one home was destroyed and hundreds evacuated. the boulder fire destroyed 166 homes, that fire is still not fully contained but many are allowed to return home now. the muslim cleric leading the effort to build an islamic center near ground zero is speaking out today. imam feisal abdul rauf says there is growing islam phobia and he says moving the center is a bad idea. jim axelrod is in lower manhattan this morning with more on that story. jim, good morning. >> reporter: a recent poll shows roughly 50% of new yorkers are not content to see the proposed islamic cultural center pushed back further from ground zero. they don't want it downtown at all. meanwhile, the man behind the project is speaking extensively about it this morning. >> is there really a need for an islamic community center in lower manhattan? is it worth all this firestorm?
7:14 am
the answer, ladies and gentlemen, is a categorical yes. >> reporter: speaking at the council on foreign relations this morning imam feisal abdul rauf said that the growing controversy over the islamic center saddened him. >> i regret that some have misunderstood our intentions. i'm deeply distressed that in this heated political season some have exploited this issue for their own agendas. >> reporter: the imam called this a time of great danger that can be exploited by extremists and the battle for tolerance must be fought by moderates of all faiths. he said the islamic cultural center will bring honor to the city and this country but said he understood the pain felt by the families of 9/11 victims. >> among the critics are some who lost loved ones on 9/11. to all of them i offer my heartfelt sympathy and my
7:15 am
prayers upon their departed souls. >> reporter: the imam posed the question is all of the controversy, all of the firestorm, worth it? he said the answer an unequivocal yes. jim axelrod, new york. >> the search is on this morning for the mother of a baby abandoned on an airplane t. newborn boy was found yesterday 18 trash bin in a bathroom of a flight from bahrain to manila t. baby imbillickle cord attached was rushed to the hospital. he is said to be in good health. officials are checking the flight manifest to try to identify the mother. offers to adopt the baby have been flooding in. frightening story. now dave price is back this morning. >> nice to see you. >> nice to see you. cooler outside. >> you can tell. it's like boom, right after labor day weekend. folks, let's start in the northeast where you see that cooler change begin

7:31 am
middleton ever going to get married? i know you got up this morning and probably 1 or 2 on your list of priorities trying to figure the answer to that. we'll come up with the answer not this year. but, in the very near future. we'll check that out with the author of the definitive book on prince william and prince harry and find out why 2012 is the big year. >> uh-huh. looking at that. first on a much more serious note in connecticut a man accused of one of the worst murders in the state history goes on trial today. police say he and another man broke into the house of a prominent doctor, killed his wife and two daughters. our correspondent is at the courthouse in new haven, this morning with the latest on this tragic story. betty, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, erica. dr. william petit has waited three years for today. in hours he will step inside this courtroom and face one of the two men accused of killing his wife and children. the chilling murders rocked the suburban connecticut town to its core. >> we're the type of communities
7:32 am
people go to bed and don't look their doors. >> reporter: july 23rd, 2007, dr. william petit, his wife, >> reporter: police were tipped off when the intruders took jennifer to a bank and forced her to withdraw thousands from her account. a bank teller called police but by the time they arrived, the two children and mother were dead. house burned to the ground. they tried to escape but crashed into a barricade. william petit, who barely made it alive, suffered severe injuries. at a memorial service days later, he spoke about the tragedy. >> i guess if there's anything to be gained from the senseless deaths of my beautiful family,
7:33 am
it's for us to all go forward. >> reporter: over the last three years he has launched a craw sad to have both men convicted and executed for their crimes. fighting proposed bills to ban the death penalty in connecticut. dr. petit, the survivor, made his plea very public and the governor reportedly decided not to sign the bill because of this case. >> reporter: this this morning, charged with capital murder, kidnapping, sexual assault, burglary and arson, 47-year-old steven hayes will finally face justice. both accused killers will be tried separately and dr. petit is expected to testify against both of them. erica? >> betty, thanks. we want to bring our lal analyst jack ford for a closer look at the case. it's impossible to forget this case because it is such a terrible story. one thing that really stood out the fact the defendants wanted to plead guilty and the prosecutor said, not so fast. we want to see this go to trial.
7:34 am
why put dr. petit through that? >> you know what, deaths penalty cases are very different. the defense was looking at this essentially we don't have much of a defense to the guilt phase. the evidence seems overwhelming. the doctor will identify them, caught basically running from the house. the defense looked at this probably saying here's our chance to try to save the lives of these guys so they offered up themselves saying we'll plead guilty, end this thing right now, put us in prison without any possibility for parole and everybody go home. but, this has generated such emotional response, we heard beth karas say moments ago and betty in her piece the legislature in connecticut basically voted to repeal the death penalty but the governor vetoed that and part was this case. this case, i've tried five death penalty cases, very different and very hard on everybody involved. this case is so atrocious, i think even some people who are opponents of the death penalty would have second thoughts about this. >> and do you think it will change the way things are done in connecticut? we all know as you pointed out,
7:35 am
both beth and betty touched about this what the legislature voted and what the governor ended up doing and how hard dr. petit fought for that. moving forward, what effect could this have? >> you could have a bizarre scenario, they go through the trial of the two men and the juries will find them guilty, probably, and two separate trials within a trial, jury says guilty of murder or not guilty or giltd of something less. if they say guilty of murder they move to the penalty phase, another small trial within the trial and say whether they live or die. you could get a scenario where a jury might say death penalty for the two guys and down the road with a new governor in connecticut you might have the death penalty repealed again.
7:36 am

7:40 am
katie nicholl of britain's "mail on sunday" and author of "william and harry" first reported that more than a year ago and here to tell us why that is such an important year for britain's royal family. good morning. you said this, what, a year ago? >> yeah, you are absolutely right. >> why is 2012 so important? >> a really important year because it will be the queen's diamond jubilee. >> 60 years, of course, of course. >> absolutely. this is a really, really important and momentous occasion and, don't forget, we have the olympics. 2012 will be busy. when i was first tipped off it might be a 2012 wedding the first thing i thought, where is it going to happen? >> exactly. >> it is going to be busy. >> it's too busy. >> possibly. i'm not ruling out 2011, harry. i'm not committing to 2012. i think there's potential in the royal calendar for both. don't forget, royal weddings don't just happen, they're planned. >> therefore, me tick wowsly. maybe they could have the wedding as the opening
7:41 am
ceremonies for the olympics. >> actually interesting you say that. the other story i reported the queen wants to keep her diamond jubilee completely separate from the olympics, she doesn't want them joined. >> sure. >> what will happen in 2012, the first part of the year will be dominated by the diamond jubilee and the second part the olympics. there is a potential space for a royal wedding but you're right it will be busy and crowded. >> what a party. it will be a major year of partying. >> absolutely. you remember the street parties in 1981, of course, when charles and diana got married. >> unbelievable. >> i think we'll see this on the same sort of scale. >> how long have they gone out. >> nearly nine years. so, you know, it'll be -- it'll be a long wait. >> in the history of the crown, has there ever been an engagement that lasted this long? >> no. >> charles and diana were engaged for what, and hour. >> literally months before they made their announcement official. i'm told by friends they are pretty much engaged at the moment. you are not with someone that long without making some form of life commitment.
7:42 am
i don't think she would carry on waiting this long if she didn't know at the end of the day, something fabulous, i.e. a wedding. >> if you went on her, you know, facebook page, it would say i'm pretty much engaged. >> i'm hoping. she's waiting. >> do they do rings or do engagement rings? >> she's not wearing any jewelry to signify that at the moment of the thing, is as soon as they make an announcement their lives will change forever. so, there is something to holding off. >> trying to hang on to the last vestiges of, sort of -- >> basically. >> -- whatever in their lives would be normalcy? >> i think that is absolutely right. >> is she still working? >> she is but basically living in wales. prince william is about to graduate as a search and rescue helicopter pilot in weeks. they are living in wales, a wind-swept island off the coast of wales and very happy left to their own devices. we never really get to know what's going on and that's just how they like it. >> as always, a pleasure to see you. >> thank you very much. >> i think i came up with a good
7:43 am
idea, opening ceremony and do the wedding. >> i think a great idea. pitch it to buckingham palace. >> up next, they all were going gah-gah at the mptv video music awards. we'll check out the big winners and much more when we come back. ♪
